Yes, DC is a lot cheaper than NYC. Although some people just get nicer stuff which makes the difference smaller but IMO the QOL will be higher for the same level of expenditure.
DC also tends to have a better schedule than NY unless you really like coming in at 10 AM and working until 11 PM. I would guess that the non-corporate practices temper the corporate guys a bit more in DC than in NY. You won't have the same level of day to day predicatability in your hours as they do, but there will probably be less pressure to stick around if things are quiet
Latham DC does a lot of PE work, so if you like that type of stuff then it will provide good exit options and experience. If you wanted to do more bank oriented work then DC will be a bad choice.

Latham laid off 60 of its 180 DC associates.
Wow... I recalled incorrectly. Thanks for the correction!

For the same reason that soldiers during WWI would hide in the craters of bombs, thinking that the likelihood that another bomb will fall on the same exact spot is low...
